IN THE CHANNEL ISLANDS
Motor sport has a firm following in the Channel Islands, and a race meeting was recently held at St. Ouens, Jersey, blessed by the title of the Jersey Grand Prix. An interesting course was plotted, in eluding the usual two hairpins and a new S-bend on the landward “straight.” Twelve sportsmen turned up for the fray, mounted on widely differing machines. The driving was good throughout the race, and after an hour and a quarter’s good sport the following result was obtained :—
1. W. Willmott (Morgan), lhr. 9m.
2. E. Doghove (Buick), thr. 15m. 3, N. V. Oxenden (Morgan), 1hr. 12m. 30s.
